Today’s Weather: Thursday, July 27, 2017
The Summary: NWS says; Isolated showers. Partly cloudy, with a low around 71. North wind around 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Computer Model Tables say 15-18 mph, We say; Surf expected to be 3-4 ft today. The actual wind (at Kanaha) should be stronger, we think that it will be averaging 18-20 mph, reaching the mid 20’s in the afternoon. Winds today should still be fairly side-onshore, a bit more onshore than yesterday, it should stay be “filled in” to the beach all day, and may be slightly lighter than yesterday. A few showers on Radar, in the AM.
Weather Map: Here is the weather map. Today’s isobars are more flattened than yesterday’s. This means better wind that should be more steady. The wind angle should be more side-onshore too, and slightly lighter.

|Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent, Illumination: 20%. The Moon today is in a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the New Moon and is a great time to see the features of the moon’s surface. The Moon’s Phase tells us a lot about the tides. So we are watching moon phases to better anticipate ocean conditions.|
|Hurricane Season: Hurricanes are most likely to occur July through December in Hawaii. Hurricanes bring severe bad weather, flooding rain and potentially devastatingly strong winds. The passing of a Hurricane may last days or up to a week or more. The Hurricanes usually develop far away in the eastern Pacific and we generally get several days or more warning of their approach. So there is usually time to make preparations and even evacuate if necessary. Many Hurricanes come close to Hawaii but are just too far away to have a severe effect, This near-miss scenario, and repeated canceled warnings, can give some people a false sense of security. Until one does hit, and then they may be unprepared. Here’s the link to the National Hurricane Center (NHC)|
